Bygone are the days where our only protein source comes from animals. More and more plant protein products are hitting the market giving us a wider variety of protein selections. I know what you’re thinking, “How can plants be a satisfying way to get my protein for the day?” You’d be surprised how filling a plant proteins can be though. By definition, a whole protein is a source of protein that contains an adequate proportion of all nine of the essential amino acids necessary for the dietary needs of humans or other animals.
But what are some of the best sources for plant proteins? Here are some of my favorites that can easily be incorporated into almost any diet. Keep in mind, that there are numerous powdered options which contain some of these same ingredients and can be added to your smoothies and shakes, but that’s a whole other topic.
Clearly, there are numerous options for your protein intake and many can be mingled right into your existing diet. So try some of these to help diversify your meals and continue exploring other plant proteins as a way to keep things fresh and healthy.
